* Explores what BioShock teaches the gamer about gaming, and the aesthetics of video game storytelling
* Addresses a wide array of topics including Marxism, propaganda, human enhancement technologies, political decision-making, free will, morality, feminism, transworld individuality, and vending machines in the dystopian society of Rapture
